A new generation of eco-friendly Porsche cars will soon be available in the UK. The first hybrid powered Porsches and an improved diesel V6 engine capable of returning 44 mpg are due September 2011 with both Panemera & Cayenne models available for specification on Porsches own website.
The luxury marque has seen a massive shift in fortunes since 1994 when the company bottomed out with losses of £74 million. The introduction of Boxster, Cayenne, Cayman & Panemera models to compliment the much lauded 911 saw the company rise to record breaking and recession busting £1.2 billion profit last year.
The move to improved fuel economy diesel & hybrid models is seen as a key move to the company in securing continued sucess in the marketplace.
